                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out MALCORN to see 
what's new.  The guys at GREENWARDENS like really pulled together to get a 4-1-0 this 
turn, moving up by 3.  MVP award for WENDIGO?  DARK CREATION's proud of her after 
beating SUGAR BEET and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SUGAR BEET's 
match with WENDIGO cost her a loss of 12 points!  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome AZAZEL.  Aren't DARK CREATION proud. 
(Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of MARKS PARTY must 
be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that 
I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are DARK CREATION?  MARKS PARTY, an easy team 
to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is 
SOMNAMBULANT popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of MALCORN!  He's 
got a 25-10-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Lutherax -- Caught me on a good day! -- Sugar Beet

Wind Rider -- Valiant effort, see ya down the road. -- Toe

Stump --Just didn't have it. -- Safflower

Mossrock -- The "Lutherax" is a malevolent spirit made flesh by intense hatred.  In
this case a hatred of fuzzy stones. -- H.P.L. West

Shouldn't Somnambulant or Azazel have been Duelmaster last turn as they were the
highest ranked fighters who participated.  Just a thought. -- H.P.L. West

Somnambulant -- I'm just so...wow, I am SOOO tired!  You must be catching!  Which is
odd, when you consider that any catching you do has to be in your sleep.  Hmm, that
raises a question, now that I think about it.  Do you ever wake up?  Are you ever
ALLOWED to wake up?  Inquiring Minds are horrified at the possibilities. -- Redbird

Wendigo -- Yeah, yeah, I know, I should be terrified.  Well, tell your manager it
isn't your fault, but I just don't do "shaking in my shoes."  It'd mess up my moss.
Not that you didn't do a thorough job of messing up my moss anyway, but at least you
had to DO something to accomplish it.  Not just stand there radiating "supernatural
menace." -- Mossrock

Toe Mae Toe -- You're a shapely wench, no doubt about that, but a little squishy.
Probably over-ripe.  Still, with a little basil, and I think some garlic as well, you
might have possibilities.  Put yourself unreservedly in my hands, and I will MAKE
something of you. -- Wind Rider

Safflower -- So!  You think you will blind me with color (very good color, too, I do
like a good bright yellow) and then take me down with sinister left-handed moves (no,
put your hand over THERE...), well!  All I can say is, Oh HA!  Let's do it again.
That felt sooo good, in an oily sort of way. -- Stump
P.S.  I always did like the yellow composites.  Such cheerful flowers.

Rapanuiidol -- Ha!  Thor the Rafter told me how to handle YOU.  I'm supposed to--
Wait a minute, beat you with rotten bananas?  That's gross.  There must be an
alternate course.  Hmm.  Tie your ears behind your head?  I'm not seeing that.
Balance a red drum on your head?  There's something wrong with this list of
instructions.  Could it have been corrupted in translation?  After all, Thor comes
from the land if Ikhazdurik barbarian sea-raiders, and they don't speak any kind of
civilized language, and if he could only get a Ferencian to translate for him, well,
those Ferencians just can't be relied on.  Next cousins to Karnhorns, you know.  I
think, if we had a lagoon here instead of a river, I should heave you into it and let
the corals move in.  as it is... (shrug)  Good try, though. -- Rock Maple

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
